survey of unemployment that comes out on friday. the president obama gets a good number, it will be a huge lift for him. if we go back to 8% unemployment, which is very possible, then, you know, that really throws the momentum in the last weekend to met robbie. do not forget, remember the 2005 election -- ashley: we are pretty seeing some disruption and certainly the storm is big enough, we have seen the campaign, both campaigns knocking back their schedule, canceling events. who wins? >> that is a great question. my view is, look, if president obama looks like he is in charge and that he is handling this with integrity and professionalism, i think it is good for barack obama. if you looks like he is trying to politicize this event, it is very dangerous for him. if he is seen as a professional and has all these agencies working properly, it could be a bump up for president obama. melissa: there were plenty of things planned that got canceled >> i just think at this point of his campaign events are a lot of noise. who are these people who have not made up their minds?

we glean from this? >> thomas, this is probably the most important unemployment report in years. many people anticipating the november 2nd report assumed that the race would be a little bit, well, either obama or romney would be farther ahead. but this report comes four days before election day. the entire campaign, really both campaigns, are premised on the notion of either the economy is growing or it's not growing. either jobs are coming back or it's not coming back. the assumption among most economists who are looking at this is that the establishment survey, the survey of the employers, will show about 125,000 new jobs created in october. and th and that the unemployment rate will stay close to what it was, about 7. %. the real issue is the direction of the unemployment report. if it looks like things continue to get a little bit better, that improves obama's chances. that improves the president's chances. if it looks like things are getting worse, however, that really does lend some credence to former governor romney's view that things are not what they should be. >> profe
